Nittan to exhibit UL-approved SPERA fire alarm range at Intersec Dubai 2018

Following on from the company’s successful first attendance at Intersec Dubai in 2017 and with a fast-growing customer base in the region, Nittan Europe – a leading manufacturer of conventional and addressable fire detection products – will be exhibiting at 2018’s show. This takes place at the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre on 21 January 2018. Nittan Europe will be located in Hall 4 on Stand G24.

Taking centre stage will be Nittan Europe’s complete UL-approved SPERA analogue addressable fire alarm range. SPERA has been designed with flexibility at the heart of the system. It’s capable of a wide range of system configurations and customisable with an array of modules.

Readily expandable and suitable for a wide range of applications, among them large sites with multiple buildings, SPERA uses an RS-485 interface and accommodates up to 254 addresses per two loops, with a capacity of 14 loops per control panel and up to 63 panels in one network running over copper and/or fibre optics. As a result, up to 224,000 addressable devices can be supported on one SPERA system.

SPERA features a comprehensive range of products, including fire alarm control panels, annunciators (LCD and LED), both addressable and conventional detectors and accessories. The detectors include optical and photo smoke detectors, heat detectors, combined smoke and heat detectors and Nittan’s award-winning dual optical smoke detection technology designed to eliminate false alarms from steam.

In addition to its SPERA range, Nittan Europe will also be showing a comprehensive range of its EN-approved fire alarm devices and panels.

Fire alarm control panels

Nittan’s evo+ and evolution 1 fire alarm control panels are fully-compliant with BS EN 54 Parts 2 and 4. The evo+ range is compliant to BS EN 54 Part 13 which is the European compatibility assessment of system components. Both ranges have been designed to be flexible and powerful thanks to the incorporation of the latest dual flash-based microprocessor technology.  With a host of features for maximum flexibility and ease of installation and system set-up, both the evolution 1 and evo+ ranges are compatible with the full range of Nittan Evolution analogue addressable fire detection devices.

A number of these devices will be shown at Intersec Dubai, including Evolution analogue addressable and conventional detectors featuring patented, award-winning dual optical technology plus audio visual devices, bases, manual Call Points, isolators and modules for connection to third party equipment.

A tried-and-tested solution, the Evolution range combines truly exceptional and reliable fire detection with a very high degree of protection against unwanted false alarms. Its class leading, highly flexible protocol is resistant to interference and allows for substantial amounts of information to be transmitted at high speed.

Lee James, general manager of product marketing at Nittan, commented: “Nittan is a truly international company with product ranges designed for the global fire detection industry. We see Intersec Dubai as a valuable platform for us to demonstrate our capabilities to a worldwide audience.”

Intersec is the most popular platform for security industry professionals in the MENA region. The last edition of the show attracted over 32,750 visitors from 58 countries and showcased solutions from no less than 1,304 exhibitors.

Kentec in great shape with The Gym Group in wake of fire alarm control panel installation project

A major expansion by one of the UK’s leading gym operators has seen new fire safety systems using Kentec fire alarm control panels installed within fitness centre premises across the country in order to protect both users and staff.

The Gym Group boasts in excess of 500,000 members just six years after the business first opened its doors. Members pay monthly fees with no contract commitments. The Gym Group plans to have opened 80, 24-hour gyms across the UK by the end of this year.

The fire safety systems at 21 of The Gym Group’s latest locations have been engineered and installed by independent system specialist Southern Fire Alarms using Kentec Syncro AS fire control panels and the Hochiki open communications protocol.

Customer requirements for 24-hour member access means that gyms are not always staffed so consideration had to be given to the positioning and accessibility of the fire control panels.

Kentec’s tamper-resistant windows were chosen to protect the fire alarm panels from unauthorised access to their controls while allowing access to the LED display and Zonal indicators.

To allow for the needs of all gym members, staff and visitors, some of whom may be hard of hearing or users of MP3 personal music devices, fire alarm indicators were designed into each system to provide visual naming of alarm activation.

Kentec’s flagship ‘open protocol’ Syncro Series is recognised as one of the most powerful systems of its type on the market today, guaranteeing the very highest standards of performance, safety and reliability that such busy venues demand.
